Hi! If you don't mind I want chime in......my lfs
store owner advised me to feed a very small amount every other day to keep my nitrates in check.....and the reason he gave is that if you over feed any uneattin food decays thus causing your nitrates to rise because your biological filter (live rock) can't keep up. I have read the same thing on many forums. It makes logical sense to. But I am fairly new to salt water aquariums myself and still learning....I do know when I cut back to a small amount every other day my nitraits did in fact drop like a rock. I also use RO
water....and buy my salt water already mixed at my local lfs
.....sence I am lucky enough to have on 10 min away....one more thing....feeding less did the trick for me...not a bunch of big water changes.......my current wc
schedule is 10% every other week.....
